Exercise Recommendations

Exercise recommendations in the Primal Blueprint are light, and – rightly or wrongly – I think they are too light. You will see that my WOD’s are a bit more taxing than that.

Easy cardio

  • Target heart rate 55-75% of max (this exercise level feels very easy – it might be worth getting a heart rate monitor)
  • The more the better – at least a couple of hours per week
  • Not necessarily formal exercise, can be part of the general schedule

High-intensity training

  • Single efforts between 8-60 seconds
  • Target heart rate 90-100% of max
  • Not longer than 20-30min overall
  • Once every one or two weeks

Strength training

  • Weight lifting, or body weight
